Orchard is the online platform for crowdsourced design. It has everything you need to turn your ideas into reality including free professional design tools, integrated fabrication services, and a public model library.
We think everyone should have access to the tools they need to easily turn their ideas into reality. Currently, the barrier to entry for individuals with product ideas is high as a result of expensive, difficult CAD software and a fragmented, complex short run manufacturing ecosystem. Our mission is to drastically reduce this barrier by providing a free, easy to use platform for designing, fabricating, and sharing 3D objects. Orchard is the only platform that provides everything an individual needs to truly turn their product ideas into reality. It offers a free, engineering-quality CAD tool that is easy to use and runs directly in a web browser. It also integrates fabrication services so that users can simply click a button to order a prototype of their design. Finally, Orchard provides a database of crowdsourced objects that anyone can use and contribute towards. Now, Orchard is ready to start revolutionizing the way products are conceived and created through local manufacturing and crowdsourced design.
